  1. The Queen herself has never faulted, she has proven to be worthy of the title. However those that follow on will never gain the full respect of the people, due in the main to their behaviour outside of "Royal Duties" It will remain to be seen if William can regain the respect of the people on reaching the throne after his Father's demise. That said, will there be a "Royal Family" in the future, I have my doubts about that. As a Mother and Grandmother, I'm sure privately she must be hurting over events of recent years.
  2. Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.......Just sayin.
  3. While that's welcoming news, it would be interesting to see the results of known sufferer's of Covid who had used the pill in their recovery.
  4. I wonder how many Filipino nurses that would equate to, ( forgive the sarcasm ) from a previous statement in another Topic. "Trade Nurses for Vaccine's"
  5. Plenty to see and do being based in Cebu, also Island hopping to the likes of Bantayan island as mentioned above, last trip I visited Oslob Cebu and hoping next trip to visit Aloguinsan Cebu. Bohol has quite alot to offer too. Hope your son enjoys his trip with his Dad....welcome to the forum Ross.
  6. As an "Old Fart" unless you are partnered or married to a filipina, is it not a 30 day visa which can be extended by attending police/ government office? The last time I checked a few years back you did require a "Onward ticket" which one would assume coincided with your visa expiry date. However best to check with the airline you intend to travel with as to whether or not you can delay your return date, better safe than sorry. Just typed in how long can I stay in Philippines on a tourist visa the answer was 30days, however apparently applying in advance that can be changed to 59 days. I would think an onward ticket would still be needed.
  7. Digressing slightly, but why should they? Responsibility lies on each Expat/ Traveller, to have medical cover either temporarily or otherwise. Vaccination has always been advised in the past when travelling to certain areas or countries. For those in permanent residence, this is a choice they have to make. £200 is worth spending to remain fairly confident you would survive the virus, where you choose to live. It's selfish people like below who are not helping the situation. ( From my part of the world )
  8. Lets not forget that 12/14 months ago this was a journey into the unknown. There was the race to find the first vaccine which needed to be kept at low temperature, then one that can be stored in a fridge, now its one jab or two, new variants appearing etc etc. Although there may well be delays in reaching some countries, the more we will know how to deal with it. The latest info;
  9. All overseas medical staff have to re-sit their exams on arrival in UK, for that reason quite a high number decide to work in care homes instead, at a lower position and lower pay. As for trade offs, do you really think the UK Government would try a trick like that? Little boy asks his Dad; Why are there no travelling circus's anymore? Dad answers; Because all the clowns are now in Government
  10. May I add my condolences to you Tommy,your wife "L" and to all the family too.
  11. Hi Jim, sorry for your troubles. The fact it is the second floor circuit it could well dry out, but only till the next time! If no wetness was found at the light points or swiches, I would presume he has checked the fusebox which feeds the upper circuit. Obviously all that and futher checks should be done with the power off. Any appliances wet could trigger the fuse to go. Wish you luck with it mate.
  12. For anyone interested the transfer time and prices from Cebu City
  13. Morning Dave Cheap n Cheerful, so long as it's clean and functional it will do me. But for those who are willing to pay silly prices, you can have a Bamboo hut on stilts in water, been there done that.
  14. Can't put a date on it Steve till all this lockdown situation is contained both here and Philippines. Sure could do with a break right now, its been a year of uncertainty!
